* Music/OldCrowMedicineShow isn't an actual MedicineShow, but their music wouldn't be terribly out of place at one. Except for the one about [[TheVietnamWar Vietnam]]. And maybe [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1gX1EP6mG-E this one]].

* ''Literature/WaterMargin'' suggests that the core concept of the Medicine Show is [[OlderThanTheyThink at least as old]] as [[OlderThanPrint Song-dynasty China]]. A few of the heroes are first encountered giving martial arts demonstrations in the street, trying to attract a crowd that they can sell invigorating medicines to. The source and efficacy of the medicine is not really addressed, as the point is generally to show that these genuinely skilled men have [[FallenOnHardTimesJob fallen on hard times]] before the plot gets them into some real gallantry.
